The east coast blizzard.

Was your flight canceled? Did you go home for Christmas only to find, Christmas night or the next morning that you're going to have a terrible time getting home... other home?

Everyone got spoiled because of the snowless Christmas seasons of the past. Now that things are returning to a more normal northern hemisphere winter weather pattern, people just can't cope with the snow.

They blame it on the religion of Global Warming. Now we all know that is not so and not what the sob sisters that believe in the junk science of Global Warming or the new politically correct term of "Climate Change".

It is just the normal cycles of the sun that causes all of this stuff not man-made emmissions. Just wait until the people in California (SoCal especially) and Florida get. a massive amount of snow. Then we will see what gridlock really means

Light snow unwelcomed in Ohio

Ah, yes, those wonderful storms that blow in around Charlotte and blast up the coast dumping a foot or more (sometimes two) of snow all the way up to Baaston and beyond.

I missed the last big one when it hit (although I had to dig out the house when I got back). The Blonde insisted we leave from her place (I moved to OH later that year) for our first anniversary trip back to Cancun. It was fascinating watching all the East Coast flights say, "Cancelled", as we sat in Hopkins Airport.

The people from Philadelphia didn't get to Cancun for four days.

Told my relative she's be fine getting home. She flies into Scranton. Meanwhile, the rest of my relatives in central PA are likely glad not to have shovel.

I'm still here at O'Hare; looks like I'll be about a day late. I blame the circumpolar vortex Obama inherited from Bush.

VW: placake. Sorry, I know the airline is doing its best, but no amount of baked goods will make me feel better.

I will be shoveling for days. Good thing I don't need to go anywhere.

I flew out of SFO to San Diego last week and the flight was delayed due to bad weather coming from the east coast by about 4 hours. Luckily I got on a standby list for a flight that was leaving a couple of hours earlier and was on time.
